Big announcement: a new game show sponsored by this blog is nearly ready for prime time.
The show is titled, "Lies and No Consequences." It's modeled after the wildly successful Truth or Consequences which first premiered on radio in 1940, then went to TV in 1950, lasting until 1988.
I will be your host. Here's a preview...
First Episode: The contestants are, our liar-in-chief Trump, and three of his most loyal minions; Steven Mnuchin, Mike Pence, and Kellyanne Conway.
Dave: I'll start with you Mr. President.
When will you release your income tax returns?
Trump: When they're done being audited.
Lie Points: 10 (on a scale of 1-to-10)
Moving on...Steven Mnuchin, when do you plan on fully divesting yourself from the stock you own in the movie production business?
Mnuchin: I've already complied with federal ethics rules. Next?
Lie Points: 8 (there was a hint of truth in his reply)
Dave: Everybody says Trump is a big fat liar. What's your response to that accusation Kellyanne?
Kellyanne: That's a wicked lie! I've never heard Donny lie about anything. You sound like that pencil neck Adam Schiff who hates our beloved president. Shame on you for even suggesting Trump lies.
Lie Points: 11! (an extra point had to be added for this whopper)
Dave: My question for you Mike Pence, is it true that you've told audiences that Trump was sent by God to straighten out this evil nation?
Pence: Listen, God talks to me all the time...okay? Just the other night he revealed to me that Trump is the next Christ! MAGA!
Lie Points: 0 (He's so crazed that he believes the shit he's spewing is the gospel.)
That's the end of the first round. It looks like Kellyanne Conway is the early leader.
Stay tuned to this blog for further rounds and new contestants on a weekly basis.
